    Need help diagnosing the problem

    Something's wrong with the ride of my On-One but I can't quite put my finger on what the problem is. Hoping that someone can help.

    Idea! I see the culprit!

    Trim half an inch off that rear brake cable housing and you're golden!

    Tyres

    It is the mismatched tyres. Everyone knows Red goes faster than black so with the rear tyre constanly trying to overtake the front it is sure to be causing you some problems.

    It weighs too much because of the fender on the down tube? Don't bikes move faster with mud on them?

    I think you suffer from pelvisitis. The buttcheeks somehow move to the front and the weiner to the rear, acting like a tail.

    No problem! Just put on your bike shorts backwards!

    I was an ISP sysop, and I do data security work, so I'll spare ya'll regarding some other bike seat photos I've seen.

    I don't think the seat is put on backwards, the problem lies within the angle. Tilt it 90 degrees forward and I guarantee the ride will be more pleasurable.
